January 24: Join the OCA Protest at Monsanto’s Annual Shareholders Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri

UPDATE: Activists in Maui, in solidarity with our St. Louis action, will be peacefully protesting outside Monsanto’s Hawaii HQ location on 3555 Mokulele Hwy on the same day. For more information or to RSVP, visit the Facebook event here. Organize your own local event!

What if Monsanto had to pay for its corporate crimes?

It is inevitable that one day Monsanto will be held responsible for the enormous human health and environmental damages arising from the so-called “responsible” use of its toxic pesticides, chemicals, and mutant genetically engineered seeds.

If the Biotech Bully of St. Louis were to be held liable for its 100-year legacy of corporate criminality – carcinogenic chemical food sweeteners, Agent Orange, dioxin, Bovine Growth Hormone, poisonous herbicides, seed monopolization, and genetically engineered crops, the company’s shareholders would no doubt see the value of their Monsanto stocks plummet to zero.

Following up on two protests at Monsanto’s headquarters in 2011, OCA returns to St. Louis for the 2012 Monsanto shareholders’ meeting on January 24!

Please join OCA, Pesticide Action Network, and Harrington Investments (a socially responsible investor’s group) in St. Louis to support a shareholder resolution to examine the financial risks associated with genetically engineered crops. While an OCA representative is speaking inside the shareholders meeting, another group of us will be outside, peacefully picketing.

Come to St. Louis to Make Monsanto Pay! Contact Mike Durschmid (mikedvegan AT gmail.com) to join in, or RSVP on Facebook and share with your friends.

  2. Great news, wish the protest at both sites all success.

  3. This is great and just what we need BUT too late. Its almost impossible for us to get the message out and organize a sit in within 4 days. I really believe in this call out so i think we should organize another one soon with plenty of time for preparations.
    Bear in mind: we need to contact organisations, the press, make banners and come up with a good plan to get in…this takes time.
    by the way, i am writting you from the south west of france and there is a monsanto factory 20minutes from my house in the pays basque region.
    keep up the good work.
